SILVER IMAGES JUBILEE Big English Handicap Brings Uninteresting Victory for Parr Colt BY E E COUSSELL LONDON England May 1C I have never witnessed such an uninteresting race for the Jubilee Handicap as the victory of Silver linage There was an enormous attendance at Kempton which made everything most uncomfortable It was a glorious spring day the track was in splendid condition All the crowd wanted was the favorite to win the big race and this Silver Image did in tho easiest possible manner The only doubt was whether he would get away on level terms with the other competitors ills failure to do so probably cost him the City and Subtir ban banSilver Silver Image is not blessed with the most placid temperament and he was rather frac ¬ tious at the post Polemarch received his unwelcome attentions Highlander was badly kicked on the hock and will not run again for some months as the injury is serious Granely led for fiveeighths from which point Silver Image took up the running and the race was all over The farther they went the farther he drew away from his field and the three lengths by which he won could easily have been greatly extended Silver Image which carried 102 pounds was ridden by George Smith an Australian jockey who thus completed a remarkable triple in a week by riding to victory Yellow Dwarf in the Victoria Cup Chivalrous in the Chester Cup and Silver Image in the Jubilee JubileeOVATION OVATION FOR THE WINNER WINNERThe The huge crowd hailed the victory of Sil ¬ ver Image with a regular storm of cheers the cheering broke out when there was still an eighth to go Still I mink all the sym ¬ pathy at Kempton was for the luckless Monarch Even the proverbial Yellow Jack must have been outdone by Monarch He is a thoroughly strong animal to stand tho strain of competing in four big handicaps in six weeks and looks better each time he runs His condition is a great tribute to the skill of his young trainer Walter Earle who has built up a big reputation under difficult circumstances circumstancesMonarch Monarch was well in front of the other runners finishing four lengths ahead of tho deadheaters Roman Bachelor second favor ¬ ite and Crubenmore a 100 to G chance Indeed just before the race 25 to 1 could have been obtained against the latter horse Granely was a neck behind these two All these animals were conceding weight to Sil ¬ ver Image which came from the allconquer ¬ ing Persse stable stablePrincess Princess Mary and Lord Lascelles were present to see Montserrat run he was some ¬ what outclassed and performed accordingly accordinglyPOLEMARCH POLEMARCH PRACTICALLY LEFT LEFTPolemarch Polemarch which has grown into a mag ¬ nificent horse looked exceedingly well and was genuinely fancied He was affected by the rumpus and practically lert at the post at any rate he got away so badly as to be practically noneffective as a fighting force He finished seventh I think that the St Leger winner of last year is likely to carry off the Coronation Cup at Epsom after which he will go for the Ascot Gold Cup Franklin also has developea into a grand horse with particularly powerful quarters He was obviously unfit so he did well to finish eighth just behind Polemarch PolemarchIt It is worth while mentioning that in six ¬ teen days H S Persses stable won nine races and over 80000 in stakes including the One Thousand Guineas the Esher Cup Victoria Cup and the JuWIee Handicap Further Mr Persses good fortune did not end there for on the afternon of the Jubi ¬ lee his wife whom he married in June last year presented him with a son and heir some people have all the luck
